New Student Information System
Morongo Unified School District changed to a new Student Information System this year. A Portal for student access has recently opened for students to view their grades, take online assessments, and view attendance. The Student Portal can be found at https://musd.illuminatehc.com/auth#tabs-student. We are currently asking the parents to work with their children through the Student Portal until the Parent Portal becomes operational.

Joshua Tree Elementary School has started rehearsals on their Spring production, Beauty and the Beast, Junior. Under the direction of 2nd/3rd grade teacher Mrs. Hilderbrand, a cast of thirty-four kindergarten through sixth grade students have been busy singing and memorizing lines for this hit performance. Sixth grade student Linda Madrigal plays Belle, a smart, confident young woman from a small village. Sky Daggett will be in the role of Beast, the master of the castle who is transformed by the Enchantress’s spell. Fifth grader Griffin Hilderbrand portrays Gaston, the pompous and dim-witted young man who will do anything to win Belle’s hand in marriage. Brandon Madrigal takes the role of LeFou, Gaston’s equally dim-witted lackey. The Silly Girls who are after Gaston’s heart are played by Haily Bruening, Shoham Joseph, Sierra Margrave, Kim Bransford, Savannah Kubiak, and Janae Phillips. Maurice, Belle’s wacky inventor father, is portrayed by third grade student Jesse Hale, and Kaydean Palanuik takes on the role as the creepy Monsieur D’Arque, proprietor of the lunatic asylum.
The story wouldn’t be complete without the servants of the castle. Sixth grader Alyssa Hempel portrays Lumiere, the charming French Maitre d’, and Isabel Mincer acts as Cogsworth, the English major-domo of the castle. Castle servant Mrs. Potts is lovingly portrayed by Mariah Pollard, with third grade student Sapphire Daggett acting as her cute daughter, Chip. Honesty Boyd works her pipes as the opera singer Madame de la Grande Bouche, and Kelly Bransford cleans her way through the play as the castle “flirt”, Babette. The Narrators, Alyssa Goodson, Teresa Moritz and Sierra Margrave, keep the story alive and moving. The cast is rounded out with an ensemble of villagers, wolves and castle servants portrayed by April Daggett, Junette Silva, Danika Perdue, Kona Daggett, Cheyenne Brownell, Kayla Pinuelas, Tania Yadhira Alvarado, Autumn Radcliff, Micah Schaffer, Kiyah Childs, Sparrow Millard, Liberty Vance, Tea Bradley, and Wilshawn Poindexter.
We look forward to performing for the public on Friday, May 22nd at 6pm at Joshua Tree Elementary School. Please come and support these hardworking students!
